Hi and welcome to the Forum!

Do you have all full screens at the moment, if you have any more apps you download will also be invisible. Making some folders to clear up some space is the way to go here. Press on any app until it begins to jiggle, then move an app on top of another to create a folder. You can also use the search function to find your app, swiping right from your screen will bring up this function. If this is not the case try a restart/reset.
Press and hold the power off button, the one at the top right. You will see a slide appear to power off, slide this and the screen will go dark and a Whirly will appear. When the Whirly disappears your iPad is now off. Press the power button again until the Apple logo appears, this will take a few seconds and your iPad will restart. You should restart your iPad occasionally also as it will keep it running well. Now see if it is operating.
Hold the power off button and the home button simultaneously, keep holding them in and you will see the power off slide appear and disappear, wait until you see the Apple logo appear before releasing the buttons. It will take a little longer for your iPad to start. Let us know if this has fixed it.
